Truth, Not Truthers

On September 11th, 2001, many of us sat mesmerized as we watched the second airliner fly into the World Trade Center. We listen to the television as Osama Bin Ladin told us how he had orchestrated the attack.

In the aftermath of 9/11 the Truthers were born of people that wished to blame George W. Bush and the Republican Party for every ill in the world. A decade later these people are still declaring that the Muslims are innocent, while the deadliest attack on mainland USA was the fault of Republicans within the government, only now they have just reduced the rhetoric to the government in general.

So let’s first define what is the government. The government as intended by the Constitution are the people of the United States. I doubt the Truthers believe it’s the people, so government must be all the people that work for the federal government. There are millions of federal employees that make up the government. None of the Truthers have yet narrowed the definition enough to tell us exactly who within this massive body that orchestrated 9/11.

lactose and gluten free bread was suitable for us to eat. That will go
well with the beans.”

After Barack Obama’s forth term he was appointed the lifetime position

had, along with congress, taken over the farms so that all people ate
equally. All foods found to be unhealthy were banned. The medical board
decided which foods were the healthiest and would lower health-care cost.
Once the two women had purchased their bread and other supplies, they
headed home. It wasn’t long before they were walking into the
fifty-story apartment building. They smiled at the armed soldier
standing just inside. Margo asked her friend, “Can you believe that
people used to live in single family dwellings? That was so wasteful of

Voting ‘R’

I remember standing in the voting booth staring at Lindsay Graham’s name trying to make a choice. I had the choice of sending a newcomer to Washington, or sending someone with experience and power. In the end I chose power, and since that moment I have had to grimace each time I watched the senator I sent to Washington deal and compromise with the Democrats. If Graham was at first honorable, he was quickly corrupted by the power in which John McCain offered.

Since that time I have become a part of the Tea Party movement, and I know I haven’t done as much to help as I should, but I have come to terms with the fact that we can effect change in the United States. The
day has come where others and I don’t feel we have to vote for the likes of Graham, despite pressure from beltway Republicans.
